XI. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answertoeachof thequestions.
In the world today, particularly in the two most industrialized areas, North America and Europe, recycling is the big news. People are talking about it, practicing it, and discovering new ways to be sensitive to the environment. Recycling means finding ways to use products a second time. The motto of the recycling movement is "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle".
The first step is to reduce garbage. In stores, a shopper has to buy products in blister packs, boxes and expensive plastic wrappings. A hamburger from a fast food restaurant comes in lots of packaging: usually paper, a box, and a bag. All that packaging is wasted resources. People should try to buy things that are wrapped simply, and to reuse cups and utensils. Another way to reduce waste is to buy high- quality products. When low quality appliances break, many customers throw them away and buy new ones - a loss of more resources and more energy. For example, if a customer buys a high-quality appliance that can be easily repaired, the manufacturer receives an important message. In the same way, if a customer chooses a product with less packaging, that customer sends an important message to the manufacturers. To reduce garbage, the throwaway must stop.
The second step is to reuse. It is better to buy juices and soft drinks in returnable bottles. After customers empty the bottles, they return them to the store. The manufacturers of the drinks collect the bottles, wash them, and then fill them again. The energy that is necessary to make new bottles is saved. In some parts of the world, returning bottles for money is a common practice. In those places, the garbage dumps have relatively little glass and plastic from throwaway bottles.
The third step being environmentally sensitive is to recycle. Spent motor oil can be cleaned and used again. Aluminum cans are expensive to make. It takes the same amount of energy to make one aluminum can as it does to run a color TV set for three hours. When people collect and recycle aluminum (for new cans), they help save one of the world's precious resources.
36. What is the main topic of the passage?
A. What people often understand about the term 'recycle'.
B. How to reduce garbage disposal.
C. How to live sensitively to the environment.
D. What is involved in the recycling movement.
39. People can do the following to reduce waste EXCEPT.
A. buy simply-wrapped things B. reuse cups
C. buy fewer hamburgers D. buy high-quality products
40. Why is it a waste when customers buy low-quality products?
A. Because they produce less energy.
B. Because they have to be repaired many times.
C. Because people will soon throw them away.
D. Because customers change their ideas all the time.
41. The garbage dumps in some areas have relatively little glass and plastic because.
A. each returned bottle is paid B. people are ordered to return bottles
C. returned bottles are few D. not many bottles are made of glass or plastic
42. What are the two things mentioned as examples of recycling?
A. TV sets and aluminum cans. B. Aluminum cans and plastic wrappings.
C. Aluminum cans and spent motor oil. D. Hamburger wrappings and spent motor oil.
43. The energy used to make a can is the energy used to run a color TV set for 3 hours.
A. less than B. as much as
C. more than D. not worth being compared to
XII. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to eachofthequestions.
In 776 B. C, the Olympic Games were held at the foot of Mount Olympus to honour the Greek's chief god, Zeus. The warm climate for outdoor activities, the need for preparedness in war, and their lifestyle caused the Greeks to create competitive sports. Only the elite and military could participate at first, but later the Games were open to all free Greeks males who had no criminal record. The Greeks emphasized physical fitness and strength in their education of youth. Therefore, contests in running, jumping, discus and javelin throwing, boxing and horse and chariot racing were held in individual cities, and the winners competed every four years at Mount Olympus. Winners were greatly honoured by having olive wreaths placed on their heads and having poems sung about their deeds. Originally these contests were held as games of friendship, and any wars in progress were halted to allow the games to take place. They also helped to strengthen bonds among competitors and the different cities represented. The Greeks attached so much importance to the Games that they calculated time in four- year cycles called "Olympiads" dating from 776 B. C. The contests coincided with religious festivities and constituted an all-out effort on the part of the participants to please the gods. Any who disobeyed the rules were dismissed and seriously punished. These athlete brought shame not only to themselves, but also to the cities they represented.
44. Which of the following is NOT true?
A. The Games were held in Greece every four years.
B. Winners placed olive wreaths on their own heads.
C. Battle was interrupted to participate in the games.
D. Poems glorified the winner in song.
45. Why were the Olympics held?
A. To crown the best athletes. B. To stop war.
C. To sing songs about athletes. D. To honour Zeus.
